enough, right? >> that's exactly right. >> right, and perhaps that's true from bob's perspective. i don't think the president obama's views are identical to bob's. but i tend to think that -- >> that's an understatement. >> yeah, but i do think that barack obama -- >> you've been quite critical of obama during the first three years. >> but i think that barack obama is very much a progressive. i do not think that he's an eisenhower republican or a gerald ford republican. i think that he's someone who really does want to deepen a larger social transformation. i'm also somewhat, i also believe that he really does believe in this idea that public investment is what will likely grow the economy. >> when i grew up president obama would have been considered a moderate republican i suppose. maybe somebody would have said he's a liberal republican, and i might have taken issue with it. i think that we're, you know, with president obama we know what we've got. and i expect more of the same. i think that he's going to try and make a deal with the republicans on this fiscal cliff thing. and i think it's the wrong way to go. i do not

president obama called palestinian president abbas on sunday in a bid to convince him to delay the move. the u.s. has been elected to a new term on the u.n. human rights council, winning another three years. the obama administration has played an active role of the council after the bush administration refused to take part. on monday, u.n. ambassador susan rice said the u.s. is determined to reform the council, saying it's too biased against israel. >> the on it states is clearly of the the human -- the united states is clearly of the view there are many flaws and i highlighted many of them regarding israel. it is a body increasingly proving its by you and we been proud to contribute to some of what we think are the final moments of the human rights council approach to syria, sudan, its approach to the situation in libya with the commission of inquiry's. >> the human rights vote comes just as the united nations general assembly is set to approve its and a measure calling for into the u.s. embargo on cuba. the house is holding hearings today into the meningitis outbreak linked to st

is not right. that is the real issue. why did the obama administration put an actor in a military role, then as the head of the agency evaluate the actions? i think we need a national debate about obama's troop escalation in afghanistan. it was a failure. obama is now committed to withdrawing in 2014. that is generally a good thing, but did we need the true escalation, how well did it work, should we do more? all of that cannot be addressed unless we have a national debate on the policy. am sure general petraeus' issues and other security issues were there, but that is really not the issue here. >> it is interesting. all of this takes place as roger bales is being questioned for the murder of 16 afghans. he is now at fort lewis-mcchord in washington state. >> that is another issue. i am from a military family. i really mind that the events in afghanistan are on stage. we know almost no media reporting on afghanistan. our guys are out there fighting, and if they get killed, it is on page 17. it is not right for a country to be at war unless it is committed to the war. it is not rig

progressive. toss me about obama's future right quick. >> -- tell me about obama's feature right quick. >> he wants to have a very free pass toward enactment. he would like to fix the fiscal stuff that is on the table even as we speak. i want to believe but i do not have any reason to believe that he would want part of his legacy to deal with the inequality in this country, the short sick that the middle-class and poor more than you have spoken about have been forgotten. they were given some degree of equity and held by our government. whether he is going to do it, i do not know. i would like to think that would be the big picture thing he would work on as well as winding down the road -- a war in afghanistan. tavis: since you are frank rich and i am interested in your opinion, we spent last night tom ricks.roo is there any fallout? >> i do not think there will be any political fallout. even if it happened before the election. if anything he is more admired by republicans than by democrats. it seems to be a personal feeling. it does not seem to involve benghazi. it is a weird story. we

completely different ways, all right, we wouldn't have had the backlash we had. eleanor pointed this out -- women delivered obama's race because they weren't about to put up from the nonsense that was coming from the right. >> with the statements from mourdock and akin, women wanted romney to denounce it. women wanted the party to denounce it, and romney never came out to denounce it. bottom line is this -- we played it too safe, we didn't think women were monolithic voters or cared about the economy, but when it comes to legitimate rape and abortion, women stood together. >> i wish that's all it was, really, but the whole year, particularly when republicans took over so many state legislators, that's when the war on women, if you forgive me, began. you had record numbers of anti-contraceptive and and antiabortion laws, even a tax on equal pay laws, the congress with the blunt amendment on where they actually had a vote on whether or not insurance policies ought to include contraception if the boss is in disagreement. so you can talk messenger all you want to or two members who clear

years ago. it was about, what, a month from now four years ago, right after president obama was elected for the first time before he was inaugurated that operation cast led happen that killed more than 1000 palestinians? what do you see happening now? >> well, it brings back for many gazans the past led operation. many think, this is cast led 2. you can see it in the streets free of you walking the streets, people are rushing into the shops buying food. the gas stations, if not into, are very crowded with people trying to get as much fuel to run their electricity. as we speak right now, i do not have electricity so we have to rely on a generator in order to work. i see this situation -- it is not going to be sought any time soon. the egyptians will have to find another palestinian for whom they can talk to. i really do not see the egyptians will be able to succeed to contact anyone from the hamas leaders. given the fact even journalists who are in gaza city cannot reach the hamas leaders because they're all underground and not reachable by their phones. there is no way to deliver the me

primary drivers of our country's massive growing debt. >> house speaker john boehner. right now, there has been a lot of concern, especially among the progressives, but beyond that, insuring that people pay their fair share. but the trade-off, it is clear president obama has said, is cuts to what they call entitlement programs -- medicare, medicaid, social security. talk about these -- our guest yesterday sir anderson called, earned income benefits, actually, not entitlements. >> social security is something people have paid into their entire lives, not just people on the verge of receiving the benefits, even workers have been in the work force for some time. what is extraordinary about this moment to make, what really define president of his first term from a domestic and economic perspective is the recovery from the financial crisis was one that was a recovery for the wealthiest in america -- corporate profits boomed, wall street and the stock market increased at a time when the foreclosure crisis continued to worsen, very little attention was paid to that, very little has bee
